I'm really quite tired of the constant dismissal of anything brought up by anyone regarding any changes about anything. I didn't suggest anywhere that the proposed patch changed the rules at all- instead I was trying to point out that by adding this functionality and *not* changing the way that lookup is done *is going to cause confusion*. [... quotes from the docs which aren't relevant ...] > If you want to change the rules and provide a way to resolve the object > file name to use on a per-extension level, fee free to propose a patch. Or, I could simply voice my opinion that this patch *should not go in* without such a change, or at *least* some thought and discussion about what the right answer is here. I'm evidently not alone with this concern either as it's exactly (as I understand it at least; I don't mean to put words into his mouth) what Peter *just* brought up too. I'd really appreciate it if you would stop trying to seperate every other possible thing to do with anything from this patch except the one little thing you want. This patch touches code related to extensions and it's necessary for us to consider it in that broader light. Thanks, Stephen
